    This is obviously unconfirmed coming from a Phila. Daily News editorial, but here it is:

    http://www.philly.com/philly/opinion/20070824_MY_NAME_IS_JOE__IM_A_GUN_ADDICT_.html

    So, with the incoherent date description, the lie-in could happen either tomorrow or on the 28th during the national protest.

    In context, I think the paper meant to say the 28th, since that is the actual day of "national" protests.

    What are they protesting? Murder?

    That's been happening since the dawn of time. What changed..?


    Also, what should we be doing to counteract? Show up at Arlen's house open-carrying, to make sure the black-clad ninja death squad doesn't do anything stupid?

    I am offended by the newspaper article. I do NOT get the shakes just before my next purchase.

    All I can say is that they could have timed the update of their software to late on Sunday evening, to have it ready for Monday morning. Sloppy planning on somebody's part there. And no way should it take four days to upgrade what they already have installed. Where I work, we just upgraded a rather large (2500+ programs and other related modules) in half of a day. Of course there were a few problems, but those are getting fewer and further between.

    Shut down cigarette sales for 4 days, liquor maybe, hamburger sales...no Big Macs today buddy.
    Pick any other legal item and halt sales for 4 days and see how it goes. Hey maybe they should halt newspaper sale for a holiday weekend...

    So what rifle does one use for dove and goose hunting? :scrutiny::D

    Ah... How exactly does this help solve the problem of school/workplace shootings? Are we to understand that if another Seung-Hui Cho came up to a school building and found 32 dingbats dressed in black laid out in front of the door he'd give up, throw his guns and ammunition away, and become a peaceful person?

    As my mother used to say, some people don't have enough brains to keep their ears apart... :banghead:

    Let a state government shut down all the newspapers for four days and I imagine that the author of this tripe would be "in a snit", and would scream loud and moan long, the miserable "junkie".

    update: final report

    I forgot about this "Event" and had to search to find out what happened. Here is the best write-up I found:

    And the only attention they got was from a kid on a BMX who's thinking "I bet I could jump over all of them on my bike."

    One a month.

    More than a few of the politicians in Philly want to institute a one-a-month law.

    I for one will feel hard pressed to follow such a law. I can barely buy one gun every few months. I'll have to sell my car to keep up with the pace.

    Seriously, Sen. Specter is a lame duck.
